  1. I am truly grateful for the grace house and all it has done for me this past year . I’ve struggled with addiction my entire life and was always living in the problem instead of trying to find a better way out for myself. I struggled mainly with depression, which shifted me into addiction at an early age . Over the years it became worse, and I only went further down. I’ve tried to get clean several times and the result was relapse everytime because I chose to see the differences instead of the similarities between me and everyone else. Once I got to the grace house this time something just clicked . Something changed for
    Me, and it was my perspective on myself and where I wanted to go in life . While there I learned to love myself , gain tool to fight this disease, and truly enjoy being around the other girls and have real friends . This house helped me push myself forward and means the world to me . I owe everything in my sobriety to God and grace house . This place saved my life and helped me change my thinking to ultimately better myself . I can’t tel you enough how much this place means to me and other people who have graduated the program . My life is the best it’s ever been and for that I’m grateful !!!!

  2. Where do I even begin …

    Prior to coming to the Gracehouse Alcohol was all I knew ! I was broken tired hopeless and the best word I can think of to explain it all is EMPTY … spiritually mentally and physically! I couldn’t do ANYTHING unless I was intoxicated … and I ended up hitting some serious LOWS … from being Homeless, Jail to Car Accidents and the list goes on … I literally gave up and the only answer I could think of was suicide but TODAY I thank God for my family who loved me enough to realize that I had a problem and loved me enough to get me some help … after being on suicide watch then detox then a rehab I was given the opportunity to come to the Gracehouse .. I DID NOT WANT TO COME … but being so empty and broken and after everything I tried wasn’t working I said why not just TRY it so I did
    It was VERY HARD for ME at first but I had nothing else so I stayed and listened and took suggestions and just TRIED SOMETHING DIFFERENT and TODAY by the grace of God with the love of my family and BECAUSE OF THE GRACEHOUSE I CAN SAY I HAVE ONE YEAR OF SOBRIETY I HAVE MY OWN CAR I HAVE AMAZING FRIENDS AND I AM CURRENTLY TYPING THIS IN MY VERY OWN APARTMENT * TEARS * so thankful that I was 1% willing to just TRY … I have a relationship with God that is out of this world and a whole new perspective on life
    I can honest say I am FILLED with Joy happiness and freedom … if you are reading this and just one percent of you is wanting to do it DO IT !!!!!!!!!! Trust me !
    Thanks Gracehouse for helping me find ME again
